Quantum Dissipation and Control through Feedback Networks
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
We discuss the role of dissipation in the analysis and design of quantum control systems, and in particular how the approach of control by interconnection” due to Jan Willems can be implemented in the quantum domain utilizing the formalism of quantum feedback network. Our results include an in?nitesimal characterization of the dissipation property, and review concepts such as the Positive Real and Bounded Real Lemmas in this context. We also discuss recent work on stabilization of open quantum systems.
